A pop-up appears and AODocs asks you to enter the name of your new library (8) and to select a storage account for your new library (9).

Note: The library name can contain any kind of character (including special characters) but the library name must be unique (two libraries can not have the same name).

If you have only one storage account configured on your domain, it is selected by default.

If multiple storage accounts have been configured, select the storage account you want to assign to this library from the list of available storage accounts.

This account will own the Google Drive documents of the library you are creating.
